Art Commission Contract


The parties agree as follows:

1.      The Project: Patron is commissioning a work of art created by the Artist. Subject matter will be described herein.  The commissioned work will be a reproduction of a photograph done with Acrylic paint.

  • The artist will show the patron, the artwork at the approximate halfway point.  This is when any changes may be made.  Any major changes made after this point will cost the customer $30/change, due to the amount of time and effort that goes changing these things.  Examples of major changes are changes to skin color/ shade, change in clothing color, drastic changes to the background, and anything of that nature.


2.      Right of Refusal: It is the intent of this contract that the Artist creates artwork for the Patron that the Patron will purchase the work. However, if, after the work is completed, the Patron does not wish to purchase the work, the Patron may refuse the created artwork. In that case, the Artist will retain the refused artwork and the nonrefundable deposit, free of any claims or interests of the Patron and the Patron will owe no additional fees to the Artist.

3.      Copyright: Artist reserves the common-law copyright to all works commissioned by Patron that are created by the Artist, including all reproduction rights and the right to claim statutory copyright. The Patron may not reproduce the work without the prior written approval of Artist.

4.      Payment Amounts: the parties for the individual artwork will decide selling price. Fee will be based upon size and complexity of completed work and will be consistent with other comparable works by Artist at the time of sale. Parties will agree to price in writing prior to the commencement of the artwork. The Artist and Patron will mutually determine size.

5.      Payment Terms: A nonrefundable deposit of $50 is required before work commences. Payment in full is due upon receipt of artwork(s).  If the patron is satisfied with the final product, they will owe the remaining balance (the original price minus the deposit) which is non refundable. Customers outside of the US will be responsible for shipping costs
